The latest Marvel superhero adventure, ‘Captain Marvel’ hasn’t been without its controversies before the movie has even hit the big screen. Thanks to the vocal stylings of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson’s call for diversity inclusion in the film’s press tour, a few fanboys have taken her comments a bit too much to heart.
Any press is good press right!?
We had the pleasure of sitting down with the film’s directors, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck as well as actress Gemma Chan (who plays Minn-Erva) to chat about entering the Marvel universe for the first time and more.
Larson stars as Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight. The film will be set in the ’90s before the Avengers ever thought of assembling, and Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role as Nick Fury.
The film takes place in the mid-1990s and the superhero is the first one that Nick Fury meets. When the movie begins, Carol will already have her powers and has joined an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law’s commander.
However, she finds herself back on Earth to battle with the Skrulls as they invade the planet with Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos at the head of the army.
The film hits cinemas March 8th
